President congratulated Russia’s President on national holiday

Friday, June 12, Vilnius - President of the Republic of Lithuania Valdas Adamkus congratulated President Dmitry Medvedev of the Russian Federation on National Day.

According to the President of Lithuania, the step made 19 years ago towards Russia's sovereignty based on the ideals of freedom, truth and democracy was a great achievement not only for Russia itself but also for the whole Europe and the rest of the democratic world.


"Lithuania and Russia have been linked for hundreds of years and their relations are built on constructive dialogue and mutual interests which are acquiring a new impetus today, particularly in the fields of economy and culture," the President underlined and expressed hope the two states would continue developing successfully their direct contacts in business, culture, education and art, and addressing efficiently the challenges arising to the region.


The Head of State also expressed confidence that bilateral cooperation of the two states would benefit not only Lithuania and Russia but also the whole Europe.


"I am confident that Lithuania and Russia will keep their good neighbourly relations and the two nations will be brought closer together by the spirit of mutual trust and bridges of friendship. Please, accept, Your Excellency, the assurances of my highest consideration," President Adamkus writes in the letter of congratulations.
